Front Popping Noise

hey guys, i bottomed out in the snow (turned out to be ice) the other day, i had to rock it front to back to get it out. during the last session of this there was a loud popping noise as is something snapped in the front right. i haven't driven it since accept for home which wasn't far. any ideas on what it could have been?

You will have to crawl under there and look for damage. It could be just about anything. If you don't see anything, post up some pics here and let everyone else see what you have.

Look at your trac bar mount & make sure it's good & tight.

First thing I'd check would be the front axle u-joints.

Yep, especially if the popping continues while driving.
